Sorolla and America

I'm sick of winter already, and it hasn't even started in Greater London yet! My back garden is autumnal and my Mrs Popple fuchsia still hasn't been blackened by frost. To cheer us up, here's some Spanish sunshine: Joaquín Sorolla y Bastida's The Young Amphibians (1903). You can feel the warmth. It's one of the paintings in Sorolla and America, a major retrospective of the artist's work which opened recently at the Meadows Museum of Art in Dallas, Texas. More than 100 paintings, oil sketches, and drawings are on display, many from private collections never before seen by the public (CLICK).
